Thyroglobulin rising after thyroidectomy

Posted by carcosma @carcosma, May 11 12:33pm

I have my body scan tomorrow. Took the radioactive pill yesterday. I’m just in a panic today. My thyroidectomy was last February. An angioinvasion was found in the tumor with five blood vessels. Cells were found in the vessels. Since then, my thyroglobulin levels have steadily been increasing. If the thyroid is gone, the cells have to be somewhere and I’m terrified. Has anyone gone through this?

@carcosma, how did the body scan go? How are you doing?
